The markings of a damp house
If your home currently has a damp issue, then there's undesired water and moisture in the floors, ceilings, and walls. Complications come about for various reasons, including porous bricks, moisture rising up from soil, leaking pipes, and missing or broken roof tiles. A minor dark patch on your wall may appear harmless initially. However, if you're not quick when taking care of it, you'll soon find yourself in a worse situation.
Some of the average indications of damp include peeling or lifting wallpaper, musty odours, discoloured patches on your plaster, and excessive window condensation.
There are three types of damp and each has unique behaviour. Rising damp typically moves vertically up the walls, whereas penetrating usually moves in a horizontal fashion. Condensation on the other hand results in moisture on surfaces such as walls and ceilings.
If it is rising damp in particular that you're concerned about, there are distinct manifestations you should look for. These include peeling paint, brown or yellow tide marks, wet or rotting skirting boards, and lifting and wet floor coverings. At times, this type can prove to be a challenge. The ideal approach when tackling it would be to have our people come and examine everything.
Checking for damp yourself
To inspect for moisture problems within a house, attentively study ceilings, floors, and walls for the smallest amount of evidence. Feel around for wet marks and look under any floors that seem to be lifting. During the early phases, a musty or damp smell may be all you have to go on. If you have wallpaper, listen for faint crunching sounds and look for water marks.
